Kiss the Ground was established in 2013 as a 501(c)(3) with the goal of creating societal awareness about the solution to humanity’s greatest challenge that is right under our feet.

Since then, millions of people around the world have viewed our media, utilized our educational resources, and engaged with our programs’ offerings. All of our resources and advocacy tools are intentionally designed to inspire and empower everyone to get involved in the regenerative agriculture movement. We are excited to share these tools and knowledge around the globe to awaken people to the possibilities of regeneration.

Coming Soon: Booking at Kiss the Ground.  At this time we are reorganizing our approach to public speaking engagements. Please stay tuned for new Kiss the Ground educational booking opportunities coming in early 2023.
